Fans were ecstatic when Disney announced that the Sanderson Sisters would be returning for a Hocus Pocus sequel.
Now, as we inch closer to the Fall 2022 debut, additional details are being revealed surrounding the storyline of Hocus Pocus 2.
We already know that Bette Midler confirmed she and her “sisters,” Sarah Jessica Parker, Kathy Najimy, will return for the sequel. Fans are also hoping to see Max Dennison (Omri Katz) and Allison (Vinessa Shaw).
Now, as reported by The Illuminerdi, we know the movie will follow a high school-aged girl named Becca. Becca is a loner who does not have many friends and a stepmother she really dislikes. Per their report:
Becca is an aspiring witch who manages to get her hands on a new dark flame candle at the town’s magic shop located in the Sanderson Sisters old cottage.
Along with classmate, “Izzy” a confident oddball, Becca mistakenly summons the Sanderson Sisters on Halloween night leading to chaos in the town as the girls race to find a way to stop the witches who still seek youth and immortality.
And it looks like the sisters will not only come across Becca and Izzy, but “Giles” the owner of the magic shop in their former home, “Sam” a classmate of the girls and magician who works at Giles’ magic shoppe who also has a crush on Becca, and Becca’s kind and cheerful stepmother “Luann” who is an outsider in her own right.
At this time, we do not have any additional details surrounding Hocus Pocus 2, but we can look forward to the return of Bette Middler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy as the Sanderson Sisters.
Inside the Magic will continue to update you as we get information surrounding the highly anticipated sequel.
